A couple weeks ago I mentioned to Casey I was thinking about doing away with my iPhone at upgrade time and going back to a regular old cell phone. To save money. Because it made sense. Right? He kind of gave me that doubtful look and went on about his business. I think he was worried this was going to turn into a family sacrifice that also involved his iPhone and he was just reverting into the "if we don't talk about, it won't happen" mode. And he probably just knew my idea was crazy. ;-}
But, I was really intrigued by the idea that I could make the switch after having my iPhone for a couple years. I thought, I'll be a pioneer, the first person to break the iPhone sire bond. I figured my iPhone was really just a glorified iPod so why would it be so hard to go back to a real cell phone, the kind that only makes phone calls. Right? I mean, I had had my regular old cell phone since something like 2003. So, for something like eight years I had survived without those fabulous little iPhone apps.
It sounded so easy and logical...for all of about half an hour. Then, reality set in. I probably use my cell phone more than my computer these days. Really, i think my phone can do just about everything my computer can do. No, really, my phone does more than my computer can do! I was having serious doubts about my resolve to do away with the iPhone. I really love those fabulous little iPhone apps.
So, what became of this crazy notion?
Yea, it went down in flames this morning as I upgraded not only my phone, but Casey's as well. But, if the upgrade had cost more than 99-cents for a new phone I would have just kept the iPhone I have. I have this thing about not paying big bucks for a cell phone. Maybe I can hold on to that principal since I couldn't muster the courage to be a pioneer and start a cell phone revolution! Guess I'll just be a slave to my technology like everyone else!
Now, what do I do with the old iPhone when my new one gets here?
